The Valentine's Quilt

 I'm still trying to figure out what to give hubs for Valentine's day. I have a card but gee, i'd like to do something nice for him. The problem is, I'm completely blank. I thought we would do what we usually did which is nothing or hubs would send mixed color roses. He ended up sending 2 dozen red roses (arrived yesterday) and chocolate covered strawberries which will probably arrive today. (I know this b/c they sent me an email on Sat. telling me my orders were confirmed. oops)

Hmm, maybe I'll make the chicken he likes for dinner and do a special chocolate dessert.

What are your Valentine's Day plans?

I succeeded in finishing my Valentine's quilt and had it hung on the wall before our Sat. dinner with friends and family. My mid-arm Midge was loaded with the DWR quilt so I had to baste and quilt this hanging on the domestic machine.   I succeeded in reminding myself why I bought Midge. I hate basting.
I tried to forego basting the tablerunner I created using extra strips. That was a bad idea.  Needless to say, the tablerunner did not make it to the table.  I'll fix it later and use it next year, though.

Anyway, here's the wall hanging. I went with both colors for the hearts.

Happy Valentine's Day!

I hope someone gives you a great idea for your husband, because I need an idea also. I am so going to be keeping an eye on the responses you get.

I love the quilt, so simple yet very pretty. Makes me want to dig in my stash and make one up quick (well as quick as time allows for me - that would probably a week with time constraints these days). I'll take what I can get though.

Definitely on my list for the next week or so.
